A string of former teammates, including Derby County’s Martyn Waghorn and Sheffield Wednesday’s Aden Flint, have sent messages of support to Bristol City’s Andi Weimann after he suffered what looks like a season-ending injury.
The electric Austrian has made up part of Dean Holden’s first-choice midfield three this season but was forced off in the second half against Swansea City on Saturday.
The South West club announced today that Weimann would undergo surgery next week to repair after suffering an ACL injury.
City indicated that Weimann could be set to miss up to nine months on the sidelines as he recovers from the damage to the ligament in his knee, meaning he is likely to miss the rest of the 2020/21 campaign.
The 29-year-old took to Instagram to send a message to fans after the injury news was announced, reassuring them that he’d be back as soon as he physically could and that he remains 100% behind his teammates.
The Robins player appears to be a popular figure in the footballing community as a string of former teammates have been quick to offer messages of support, including Flint, Waghorn, Cardiff City’s Marlon Pack, Kasey Palmer – who is on loan at Swansea City – and Brighton’s Adam Webster.
Are these 12 facts about the Robins’ history genuine or not?
You really have to feel for Weimann, who has been ever-present in the City side since joining in 2018 but now faces a long stretch on the sidelines.
Given his industrious and high energy performances on the pitch, it’s no surprise to see that so many former teammates have been quick to send messages of support.
Hopefully, the City man has as swift a recovery as possible.
